What's included

  • While the building is old, the restaurant itself is opened in 2013 and offers what the Durham Times calls "impressive" and "delightful" cooking.
  • Here's what the deal includes:
  • - Choose from a glass of prosecco, a bellini or an Aperol spritz each
  • - A starter such as tuna carpaccio with a seafood salad of mussels, smoked salmon and oysters
  • - A main course. We like the sound of the rack of lamb with a herb crust and red wine sauce or the Angus sirloin stuffed with breasaola in a rich port sauce
  • Close to the river and attractive woodland, the restaurant's location lends itself to a pre-lunch or dinner stroll.
  • This offer is valid for lunch 12pm-3pm, Tuesday-Saturday or for dinner 6pm-9:30pm, Tuesday-Thursday and 6pm-10pm Friday and Saturday, subject to availability until 20 November

The desserts were particularly nice

The Manager was very rude and treated full paying customers completely different to "voucher customers". He insulted my companion when she declined a wine glass for the bottle of wine we had just ordered and he immediatley siad, are you on a diet? my companion is a large lady and he she didnt hear him say this the first time and said she was driving, he then said Oh I thought you were on a diet. Then when he came to serve the vegetables for our main dish, my compnaion had a bag on the table next to her and he just said "bag" The Manager, Marco, needs to learn how to serve customers. None of our party will ever visit this establishment again.
